HON CHEMISTRY: So what do you think would cause these beautiful colors? Great intro to the properties of acids and bases, indicators and pH! Don’t forget The Physics Classroom assignment.

Here’s a hint – Phenolphthalein indicator is always hot pink/magenta in a base.
And last hint – the more negative the H3O+ concentration (that means the higher the negative exponent) the more of a base that it is. The lower the number of the exponent (which actually makes it a higher number) the more of an acid it is.
How’s the exam review packet coming along? Help session for the exam Thursday morning, 7:15ish A.M.
